Apply for a Fellowship

The Netherlands Heart Institute can facilitate up to 2 Fellowships of €45.000 each for one year. The fellowships will be awarded during the Translational Research Meeting.
You can apply for a shorter Fellowship in which case the amount is reduced proportionally. For example, for a 4 month Fellowship you can apply for up to €15.000. If there are applications for shorter Fellowships we may be able to award more than 2 Fellowships. However, quality is always leading.
With the Fellowships, the Netherlands Heart Institute aims to give talented young researchers the opportunity to go abroad for new knowledge and skills.
